I actually did not play World of Warcraft for a month while I engaged Runes of Magic. They have quests, an economy, PvP, PvE, good looking toons, mounts, a dual-class system, and best of all it is free! I rated this game a solid 8.5 out of 10. Build...

International Review By I Am Gamer on 80

Die Auswahl zwischen verschiedenen Rassen gehört zur Konzeption eines MMORPGs, wie leere Pizzakartons und haufenweise ungewaschener Wäsche in den Unterschlüpfen eines jeden Hardcore-Zockers. So war es auch nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis...

Aller guten Dinge sind drei? Im Falle des immens erfolgreichen und mittlerweile mit einer gigantischen Fanbase unterfütterten Free 2 Play-MMOs „Runes of Magic“ stehen die Zeichen dafür zumindest schon mal nicht schlecht. Denn...

Der Berliner Publisher Frogster Interactive erfindet das Rad mit Runes of Magic sicherlich nicht neu, bietet aber für ein kostenloses MMORPG - ein Fakt, der in unseren Wertungen übrigens keine Gewichtung hat - extrem viele Inhalte, die...

Beachtlich ist, in welchem Umfang die Weiterentwicklung, die das Free2Play-MMOG aus dem Studio Runewaker Entertainment genommen hat, ausfällt - und das zum Nulltarif. Vom Rhythmus der regelmäßig eingebrachten Ergänzungen, seien es...
